mccrissal for the first time since he resigned two years ago. in his memoir that comes out tomorrow he takes blame in the article that ended his career. mcchrystal was the top commander in afghanistan at the time of his resignation. the article caught him criticizing president obama and vice president biden. the magazine stands by its reporting. now to syria where president assad addressed his nation in a rare speech just moments ago since the embattled president's last address in june, tens of thousands of syrians have been killed and even more have fled their homeland. more than 60,000 people have been killed across the country and the new year looks to be ushering in the same bloodshed and violence. mohammed jamjoon is watching things from beirut. if you can, break down what he had to say. >> good morning, randi.
3:09 am
what we heard was a defiant reporting a lot of the same rhetoric that we heard from him when he's given speeches. rarely he has given them the last couple years but when he's given them or given interviews he disputed the notion that there was even a revolution going on in syria. he talked about how there was no fight in syria between the opposition and government forces, rather, it was between syria and its enemies. here's more of what he had to say specifically on that point. >> they are calling it a revolution. but it is not a revolution. revolutions need intellectuals. is there any thinkers for this revolution? revolutions need leaders. who is the leaders of this revolution? >> now, at the end of this speech, he did offer an initiative in which he said
3:10 am
there should be a dialogue conference in syria. that there should be a national charter created. referendum for a new constitution and possibly, after all that, a silm for prisoners in syria. but he said that can only come after they continued their military campaign. essentially, assad is saying that he is going to continue to go after rebel fighters there. he continued to deny that there's any home-grown opposition or any grassroots opposition in syria, which he said so many times the last couple of years and he said he would only try to implement this new initiative after they were able to vanquish the terrorists in syria. he thanked russia, iran and china for being steadfast allies of syria and not allowing any kind of foreign intervention there and said that there could be no foreign-backed peace plan for syria. any peace plan had to come from within syria. once again, a rambling speech. one at which at one point he
3:11 am
said that the syrian government was looking for a political partner the way a husband to be might look for a wife. but they are not able to find one. rambling speech, a meandering speech -- >> so, why now? >> entrenched and defiant. >> why come out now and give this speech? >> he's been under intense, intense international pressure to try to address the fact that the u.n. and so many countries are waiting to see if he will agree to any kind of a transitional plan, a transitional government. the last couple of weeks there's been a flurry of diplomatic activity. the joint u.n. and envoy to syria was in syria and then he was in russia and then he was in egypt trying to forge a path towards peace. they were waiting to hear a response from assad and they got it today. today he remained defiant. he said the only kind of initiative that will be of use in syria is a syrian initiative.
3:12 am
this is not the kind of rhetoric that world powers really will want to have heard from assad. no agreement to any kind of a transitional plan. so, yeah, it's -- as far as syria goes, the fighting still remains. just a few days ago now we heard that at least 60,000 people have been killed as a result of fighting there in the nearly two years of fighting there. >> mohammed jamjoon, thank you. the new congress is stepping up on gun violence with a flurry of new bills introduced. those bills may increase the number of guns around schools. we'll explain.

a new era dawning in the u.s. navy. 20 years ago that women were first allowed to serve on service ships and a year ago they were cleared to serve on submarines. but now three women made military history. cnn pentagon correspondent chris lawrence has that story. >> reporter: it's a new frontier for female sailors. submerged for months, no sun, no space, no sleep. lieutenant marvek one of the first women to qualify for submarine duty. everything you expected? >> i got a lot less sleep than i imagined i would. >> reporter: we met her a few years ago when she went by her maiden name, reid. she was a cadet at the naval academy when the pentagon opened subduty to women. >> at the time, i was flying. i was a pilot. selected to be a pilot after graduation. >> reporter: she decided her future was under the water, not
3:33 am
soaring above it. she wasn't afraid of breaking a barrier. >> i see us just being like our male counterparts and i think we'll be accepted the same way. >> reporter: we reminded her of what she said then and read some of the reaction from fellow and former sailors. way to go. welcome to the pride of the fleet. wear those gold dolphins proudly. also, this is about giving feminists what they want. glad i got my dolphins pinned on and keep the eye candy upwardly mobile. >> there's always going to be an aversion to change. and, so, best way to deal with that is to just go and do my job like any other officer would. >> reporter: male and female officers do not sleep in the same state room, but that is about it. >> i can't imagine there is very much room for separating men and women. >> honestly, i didn't even notice it. >> reporter: since all officers use one bathroom, they use a
3:34 am
sign to notify each other. >> reporter: she earned her dolphin this month. a gold chest device that means she's mastered submarine operations. >> soin the book. >> yes, sir. >> been a long time coming, right? >> reporter: it took a year of noukler training, three more months at submarine officer school. and then her first sea tour. >> it's a huge honor to finally really feel like i'm a part of the submarine community. >> reporter: in fact, she is one of only three women to qualify as unrestricted line officers. that's big because it means down the road she would be eligible to one day assume command of a nuclear powered sub. it's pretty clear that whenever war is waged under water, women are going to be a part of that fight. chris lawrence, cnn, the pentagon. well, it's a new year and a time for new beginnings. that includes your wallet.
3:35 am
but that's not always as easy as it sounds. i'm joined by author karen lee. it is the new year, a lot of people thinking about their finances. when trying to sort out our money issues, where is the best place to start? >> amazingly, randi, the best place to start is being honest with yourself. this is tough for a lot -- when it comes to money, people love to stay in denial. so, really being honest and what i recommend is put it down on paper. so, to start with, you need to, of course, the word every american hates, budget. so, you need to start looking at the budget. how much income comes in and add up the monthly and annual spending. i will tell you, in my practice, this is where i get the most resistance. people don't want to add it up and come clean with what they spend. and then next is add up all your debt. and, again, people know they've got this on this card and this on that, but they haven't added
3:36 am
it all up. i once had an older woman come to see me. when she added it up, it was $28,000. add it all up and then add up all your saving account and write it down. >> that's one way to be honest. when you see it on paper, you know it. >> yeah. >> in terms of the debt, since you mentioned it, that's the hardest part, how do we lower it? >> the first thing is, look at that number and say is this urinsurmountable. if it is, you're probably going to need debt consolidation help. if you know you can get that number down but it will take five plus years, get a second job, even if it might just be for a short period of time. if you haven't had a raise for three years, go in and ask for a raise and anything you get, put it straight towards the debt. you might consider in the evening trying to gain some new skills so you can increase your
3:37 am
earning ability. >> some online learning might be good. >> now, if you are overspending, still, of course, get a budget. if you're just seeing that you're not saving enough, challenge yourself to increase the amount that you automatically save. so many people just save up to the match of their company 401(k). go up one or two percent every quarter and see if you can adjust to that. >> that's good advice. what about somebody they were listening and they say, but, i think i've been doing everything right and they're still not getting on track. >> or they start every year with the same resolution and they break it. >> just like going to the gym. >> at this point you need to fess up and that you need some help. are you repeating old behaviors and habits that you can't quit on your own? if that's the case, start by seeing a certified financial planner. you might want to see a certified money coach. and, last but not least, people always laugh when i bring this up, but you might have to go to
3:38 am
therapy -- >> financial therapy -- >> well, go to a therapist who has a specialty in money issues. as you know, in my book i talk about all the time, people have these deep seeded connections with money and sometimes the smartest people around just can't break those habits. >> sometimes it's hard, too, because if you're married you and your spouse might have different ideas on how to get back on track. >> if one person won't the other one says, why should i? >> one is a spender and then the other can't rein him or her in. >> that is tough and i the cause of many divorces. >> i know you know about that. not personally, just from your book. >> great tips. thanks for being here. >> nice to see you. the case of two high school boys accused of rape from disturbing videos to messages on twitter. how it can help or hurt each side. but, first -- a big good morning to washington. lights are on. nobody's home yet.

3:40 am
3:41 am
3:42 am
more now on the disturbing story of two football players accused of raping a 16-year-old girl at a party in steubenville, ohio. what makes this case stand out is the explosion on social media photos and even an online video showing some of the teens laughing and joking about the incident. >> what if that was your daughter? >> but it isn't. >> if that was my daughter, i
3:43 am
wouldn't care. i'd just let her be dead. >> listen to yourself. my daughter's going to be getting raped and dead. >> i spoke with legal contributor paul callan. >> the attorney general investigating this case said it is unfortunate and incensensiti but it is not a crime to be "stupid." two high school teens are charged and there is apparently a lack of physical evidence and the case seems to hinge on the witness statements, media images, cell phone grabs and videos like the one you just saw. how damaging could video like this and other social media be to the defense? >> it could be extremely damaging to the defense. you know, this, the whole landscape has been changed by cell phones and the availability
3:44 am
of video in cell phones. a crime like this in the past and this is, we only know that there are allegations that the girl was drunk, maybe unconscious when people, these two boys or maybe others were involved in sexual activity with her. normally, she may never have known about this. she may never have known who engaged in the sexual activity. but now we have video of it because we have the availability of this technology. so, the answer is, yes. this crime can be proven through that technology in a way that never could have happened before. people got away with this in the past. they're not going to get away with it in the future. >> cnn spoke exclusively, paul, with one of the defense attorneys who said that his client received a text message from the alleged victim saying, i know you didn't rape me. at cnn we point out we haven't seen the text nor we don't know what else she might have texted in that message. could that affect the case and how so? >> it could affect the case because this is a case that is going to be proven or disproven
3:45 am
with social media. if she sends him a text message saying, i know you did not rape me, a jury will look at that at some point in time and saying, does that help disprove the prosecution's case? it would sound like strong evidence. but we'd have to see the tape and the text and, you know something, randi, a lot more is coming out the more we hear about this story. how many phones were there? how many high school, drunken high school kids were close by and in a position to observe? we're going to find out a lot more about this story as the weeks go on. >> i do want to mention this internet hacker group called anonymous. they posted a picture showing a girl whose face is blurred and now the defense attorney for one of the accused confirms to cnn that his client is in the photo, but says the image is taken out of context. certainly we can't tell from the photo whether the girl is conscious or not.
3:46 am
her lawyer told cnn she was somewhat conscious but what could it have mean "taken out of context." does this photo help or hurt the defense team? >> just because two boip boys moving and doesn't mean anyone engaged in sexual activity with the girl. his context, of course, very different from the context that prosecutors talk about. i think, randi, the thing that interests me in this context argument is that these kids watching sexual activity like this and maybe a rape go on normally would not be guilty of any crime. people are shocked to know a group of boys can stand around and watch a crime. it is not a crime to do that. however, if they recorded the crime on their cell phones and they deleted what they recorded, they could be guilty of an obstruction of justice and they could be drawn into this conspiracy and this crime in a way that was never possible in the past before social media and this kind of technology. >> so, even if they weren't
3:47 am
participating. if they were there and they recorded it. >> yes, because they'll be involved in the cover up of the crime by destroying evidence. so, technology really is going to increase the liability of these kids and, you know, watching drunken high school football players talk about an incident like this is very, very disturbing. usually we don't get to see it, fortunately. but, with this new media, we do. it's going to wind up in courtrooms and people are going to be prosecuted. >> that certainly was disturbing. that whole story. paul callan, nice to see you. thank you very much. hugo chavez is supposed to be sworn in to his fourth term this thursday, but the controversial leader is still in cuba, "fighting for his health." we're taking a look at that and all the dates you need to know about in the coming week.

3:53 am
